MySkip.com is basically a rip off of an already existing website called vSkips. vSkips has been under development for 3 years by a couple of guys in Derbyshire, UK. Paul and Len came up with the idea when filling a skip with rubbish and thinking "there must be a better way". The site, entirely funded by themselves, and using no celebrity endorsements or media hype (unlike MySkip) went live in April 2007 and now has over 2000 members across the UK. There are some amazing items on the site including dishwashers, sheds, bikes and even cars - all going FREE to whoever wants them. MySkip have tried to emulate what has already been done and have resorted to spamming and splogging (spam blogging) to draw attention away from vSkips. The public, however, are not so easily fooled and have seen through MySkip.com's unethical (and ungreen) approach. May the battle commence !
